importantly, to iran, and resip indicated for by president obama is that the united states and israel stands shoulder to shoulder in terms of the time frame as well as defenses, intelligence, military cooperation so the iranians should understand that there is a common belief between the united states and israel in terms of preventing iran and he got an endorsement of the american plan to prevent iran from becoming a nuclear weapon. >> peter, do you see it the same way, as common ground now? >> well, i think what obama did was buy himself some time. remember, there's a lot of opposition inside the establishment to unilaterally strike anyway. the task will come if the u.s. gets close to a diplomatic deal with iran, would israel support any deal that the united states could manage to get with iran? i think that would be the real test. >> but why does it matter? if we get a deal with iran for them not to go nuclear in terms of weapon, why does it matter if israel opposes that if we accomplish our goal? >> because i think a lot of republicans in congress, frankly, would stand with netanyahu. >>
